During a recent chat with PEOPLE, DJ Khaled revealed that seeing his sons grow up is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Khaled announced his recent collaboration with premium baby stroller brand Cybex for a special “We The Best” Stroller collaboration, but not before opening up about how much his son Asahd has grown and how he is able to have an intelligent conversation with the 4-year-old.
“God blessed me with two beautiful boys, an amazing queen, and mother and blessed me to be a great father,” Khaled tells PEOPLE. “This is the best feeling I ever felt in my life because it’s pure. There’s really no words you can describe the feeling unless you’re a mother or father. It’s just the truth. It’s a feeling that they haven’t even made a word for yet, and it’s unbelievable.”
He continued, “Watching my kids like Asahd — he’s 4 years old now — I’m having real big, grown, and intelligent conversations with him.” He said, “I remember him being a newborn, and I’m watching my son now, how smart he is and how he’s being such a great brother to his little brother Aalam, who is one.”
“It is so beautiful when you can teach a kid to be great because they’re born great. And when you give them the right knowledge and the right love, it’s unbelievable. Genius levels at its highest,” he said. “… I cry every day, man. I cry happiness just seeing my kids. It’s all about them.”
Khaled and his wife, Nicole Tuck, welcomed son Asahd into their family in 2016, followed by 14-month-old son Aalam in 2020.
Asahd has embraced the opportunity to become a big brother. Khaled explains.
“Asahd, he knows that’s his little brother,” Khaled says. “He used to kiss my queen’s belly and … he now grabs his face and kisses him every day. He wakes up and wants to go kiss his brother. The way he grabs his face and kisses him is so unbelievable. It’s so beautiful.”
He said, “And then, at the same time, he knows that he’s gonna teach him what he’s learned,” he continues, “because he’ll talk about like, ‘Yo, when I was 1 year old, I was doing this. So I gotta make sure Aalam is doing this.'”
Tuck said that “He looks after him. He’s a real good big brother even though he feels little. It’s really cute.” She said, “They really love each other and Aalam really looks up to him.”
“He watches everything he does so intently like, ‘What’s Asahd doing?’ … They really are learning and teaching each other,” she adds. “They’ll protect each other forever. … Some kids fight with each other, but not these two. They love each other so much. It’s so cute.”
When it comes to a possible third child, Khaled and Tuck are on the same page: “I’m ready. I’m ready to go at it,” Khaled says. “Whatever God blesses us with, we’d be grateful. I would love for us to have another beautiful blessing and my two boys could have a sister. … It’s all in God’s hands and, at the end of the day, we grateful and we enjoying this. Family is everything.”
